CONCEPTUALIZATION AND PURPOSE
What is the phenomenon to be studied? What is the main topic (e.g., self-esteem, gender roles, sexuality)?
What is the purpose of your study? (i.e., what is your goal? This will become your thesis for your paper)
What is the theory driving your thinking and research (e.g., gender schema theory)? How does that theory lead to your prediction? (That is, why do you think your variables will be related to each other?)
What previous research has been done on this topic? Give specific examples such as Smith & Brown, 1999 and what they found — you don’t need a full citation, just a list
What is your specific research question?
What is your specific hypothesis? (Make sure it is supported by the research)
Sample: How will you select the participants for your study (i.e., how will you sample them)? How many people total? How many men/women? How old? Ethnicity? Any other relevant demographics?
Which variable(s) is your IV?
Which variable(s) is your DV?
DATA COLLECTION AND ANALYSIS
What kind of data analysis will be used? What statistical procedure is appropriate for your hypothesis? Why? What analysis is appropriate for your research question? Why?
Analysis 1: (e.g. I will do a t-test to determine if men or women have better self-esteem)
If your hypothesis is supported, what will that mean? If the hypothesis is not supported, what will that mean? (How will this relate back to your “big picture” or theory?)
EXTRA QUESTIONS TO CONSIDER (NOT NECESSARY TO ANSWER before meeting)
What other literature found support for your hypothesis?
What other literature did not find support for your hypothesis?
Limitations for your research: List and state why these are limitations.
Future directions: What should the next project address, based on your findings?
